BAMBOO for Researchers...

BAMBOO DIRT is very a useful one-stop-shop for digital research tools of all shapes and sizes.  Whether or not your research itself has a digital bent, you are likely to find something of interest.

The various resources and tools are neatly categorised into typical research tasks such as
  • analyse data
  • make a dynamic map
  • organise research materials
  • annotate resources
  • write collaboratively
Clicking on a task opens up a list of what online tools are available for that particular aspect of research, along with brief descriptions and links.  The lists can be further narrowed by cost (including 'free'!) and platform (Windows, Apple etc.) so you can quickly see what you're looking for.
